I’ll start out with a little of my background when it comes to X-Men and there will be spoilers in this review.
I LOVE X-Men, I used to constantly watch the 80’s television show and I now have the whole series on DVD. When the first lot of X-Men come out in the early 00’s, I was so excited to watch them, especially when I realised that they were going to have Rogue…Only to have my heart broken…Rogue is my girl…Rogue is probably my favourite female character of all time (except for River Song and Harley Quinn) Rogue’s the one I have loved the most…And they ruined her!
I refused to watch the new series of X-Men movie, but I can honestly say that they are a really good bunch of films. X-Men: Apocalypse is definitely a movie to get out and see, especially on the big screen. They have made up for the mistakes of the past and I trust that is Bryan Singer was to bring in a Rogue, she would be great. I am worried that these movies may not do as well because of the previous set of films.
The film also isn’t all about Jennifer Lawrence which I did notice was a big concern, with all the trailers making it seem like it was Mystique and the X-Men. I didn’t feel like that at all. She is a big character in the movie, but I felt like it was evenly placed all around. I didn’t feel like a single character was getting more screen time than other actors. Note, this is just my opinion, to some others, Jennifer Lawrence may get a lot of screen time.
I also loved Evan Peters and Kodi Smit-McPhee as Quicksilver and Nightcrawler. I thought that they were actually quiet perfect, especially Kodi Smit-Mcphee, he really did make me believe that he was Nightcrawler, from the 80’s, like he had popped out from the screen.
Please get out and see this movie…You will not regret it!
I finally got to see “The Jungle Book” (2016 film) over the weekend and I cried, I knew that I was going to cry. I laughed, I felt worried, I felt excited. It was great! I always had a feeling that I was going to like it and I’ve been waiting for it all.
The only real complaint I had was that the Elephants looked suspiciously a lot like African elephants, except for the baby elephants, who did look like Indian elephants. I get that African elephants might look a little bit more impressive (and they have a few animals from all over,lol), but this in in India.
It’s a really good movie though, doesn’t have all the dancing and music, but there are couple of favourites that people will recognise. It is also obviously a bit more darker and because the animals are more “life-like”, if you are taking children, just be wary. It’s not necessarily violent, but there are deaths.
Neel Sethis as “Mowgli” was also a great little actor, extremely believable and he didn’t have that “stop and start” static that some child actors sometimes have. He was able to just go with the flow of it.
Would definitely give this 4 and a half out of 5 books, I was just a little disappointed with how they chose the look of the elephants. Everything else was fun and a good story.
So I am training my first group today! I am really nervous about it, guaranteed it’s training my own class, full of fellow classmates, but it’s still a nerve wrecking process,lol. I am training my class mates how to set-up a Blog today. Which is probably part of my nerves because I am introducing people to something that has become very precious to myself and something that has become apart of my daily life now.
Talking with the girls (as one does) and we were talking about which ex’s do we regret the most. I’m not sure that I actually regret any of my past relationships, however there is one relationship that has an interesting way to view it and I wonder if I am alone in this.
My last relationship I felt like he was lying so much about who he was, that he never knew who I was. To me there is not way that he could possibly have cared about the real me, because if you don’t know who a person is…How can you possibly know what can hurt them? How would you know what they would consider to be a betrayal?
I put it down to this, it was like dating an actor, but dating their amazing fictional character and then realising, disappointingly, you were dating this whole other real reality. It’s the best way that I can think of to explain my last relationship. I think that’s why I find it so hard to get over what happened…Who did I date? Did I date the man, or the character?Any ways…Don’t matter no more ~.^ hehe
